AMCC tabs two Panthers POTW

The Allegheny Mountain Collegiate Conference has selected two Pitt-Bradford student-athletes to its weekly Player of the Week awards list. Freshman Elizabeth Prager was selected as the women’s swimmer of the week, while junior Sarah Foley was selected for bowling.

Prager has been outstanding in the 1650 free this season, and she was no different at the Fredonia State Invitational that took place in Fredonia, N.Y., over the weekend. In a field of more than 30 competitors, she qualified for the finals against stiff competition.

In the finals, she secured the Panthers’ top placing when she claimed the fourth place spot, finishing with a time of 18:37.08.

On the second day of the meet, Prager found herself in the 200 back final where she finished in fourth place for the second time in as many events. She clocked in at 2:11.17.

Foley and the bowling team competed in a head-to-head match with Medaille on Tuesday, Dec. 3, and the Panthers were able to collect the sweep of the Mavericks.

Foley bowled a combined 423 in two games during the Dual Match portion of the contest. The Panthers went on to defeat Medaille 1695-1473. Foley hit a game-high 240 in the second game.

Pitt-Bradford prepares to enter the holiday season as the student-athletes wrap up finals later this week.

The swim teams are back in action on Friday, Jan. 10, when they travel to Steubenville, Ohio, to take on Franciscan and Frostburg in a tri-meet. The first event starts at 6 p.m.

The bowling team returns to the lanes on Saturday, Jan. 11, as it prepares for a conference quad-meet at Medaille. First bowler hits the lane at 1 p.m.
